Done screwing with our favorite slasher franchises for the time being, Marcus Nipel is in talks to offer his lens flare laden slant on yet another famous horror tale, The Last Voyage of Demeter, for Phoenix Pictures.
Variety reports that the story, penned by Bragi Schut, Jr., is based on a chapter in Bram Stoker’s Dracula describing the arrival of the vampire count in England on a cargo ship that has crashed into the rocks at Whitby with no crew and the dead captain lashed to the steering wheel. Stoker tells the story via the captain’s log of the voyage, which begins in Bulgaria and becomes increasingly disjointed as members of the crew disappear.
No other details were available at press time, but you can expect to hear more about this one really soon.
